Today our happy campers went skiing, snowboarding, snowshoeing or to the spa for the day. This evening we have some students staying in a mountain hut at 2700 meters high, they will wake up early to watch the sunrise together.
Today is the last day skiing for some. This evening we have prize giving and we will find out who won the race! Who will be our start campers and who wont the tidy room competition!
Today was the arrival of our individuals on camp, we also had a couple of individuals that are staying with us for another week of skiing which is really lovely to see. The weather this week is meant to bring us lots of snow in Verbier which will be amazing. The individuals that stayed on camp went skiing/snowboarding and the new arrivals prepared themselves for the fun filled week ahead….
They rose up this morning with great energy, all excited to improve their skiing under the sun. They devoured their breakfasts and went down to slip into their boots and grab their skiis. Lunch was had on the mountain, and a few hours later, they made their way to the camp for a snack. Those who had languages, left for them shortly after, the remaining campers chose from a variety of activities. For dinner tonight nearly all went for Dine Out until late. They then made their way home from the restaurants and went to bed already looking forward to another day of skiing.
Today our students had the choice between going on an excursion at The Charlie Chaplin Museum and skiing.
Most of them went on excursion, discover more about this iconic personality and then enjoyed an afternoon shopping in Vevey.
While others chose to go on the mountain and to get the most of it during their stay at Les Elfes.
“Après-ski” they could either make chocolate mousse, go to the village or play some card games.
At the end of the day, ice-skating was offered to them as an evening activity. The individuals went for Dine Out either to the pizzeria or the fondue restaurant for an authentic dining experience.
The campers were woken up at 7 am and were given a healthy breakfast . They were ready for their first day at skiing in Zermatt. There were many falls on the slope but our campers were determined to learn how to ski . Everybody had a blast . We finally started our descent by 2 p.m after a tiring day on the slopes .
Everyone hit the showers as soon as they reached back at the hotel and then went into town for ice cream or played football . Some people chose to stay back and relax. Then came their courses (leadership,bushcraft,etc).
Then came our delicious dinner of burgers and fries after which we started with our clubs (apprentice,photography,etc) and the the first day of skiing ended just like it started on a happy note .
This Thursday kids woke up at 7:30 for a foggy day. Weather was not the best but kids were excited to go to the slopes anyways. After a delicious breakfast they left to go skiing and although the weather was miserable, all campers did their best and made the most out of it. All of the campers were really happy as it was ski race day. Very competitive, but all campers are looking forward to finding out of their results tomorrow at prize giving. Coming back in the afternoon for hot chocolate and bread with Nutella was well deserved by all the campers.
For most of the campers who didn’t have languages, either signed up for shopping in town or a bit of rock climbing. After dinner it was time to head to the Disco, which was enjoyed by all. So many different nationalities from our six schools this week on camp and also all our individuals. Was really nice to see that whatever country you are from, everyone can get along and have fun together.
